A new study by Juniper Research has found customer data platform providers will generate $6 billion globally by 2027, rising from $1.7 billion in 2022; representing growth of 250%. The introduction of AI-based services will be key to unifying multiple data sources on a single platform; reducing siloed data and centralising enterprise access to customer data.
The new research, Customer Data Platforms: Key Strategies, Competitor Leaderboard & Market Forecasts 2022-2027, urges customer data platforms to increase the breadth of integrations with third-party vendors, such as relationship management platforms, for greater access to user data. It highlighted the ability of customer data platforms to merge different data sources using AI as critical to unlocking more granular user insights to inform highly targeted marketing campaigns, enable greater personalisation and increase return on advertising spend.
